West Bluff North, accessed from below Suggest change

Bouldering on the West Bluff North that is easiest to access from below.  Generally via the Tumbled Rocks Trail.  The Smooth Operator and Fat Raccoon areas are very close to the car.
Areas are listed closest to the car to furthest.

Getting There Suggest change

Park at the elevated parking which is the first you come to with lots on either side of the road when driving in the north entrance (most convenient for Smooth Operator and Fat Raccoon Areas).  Otherwise parking at the North Shore Beach is fine too.
